new places new faces

Oh, right, I made it to Poland!

Thursday I slept until like 5pm in London, then worked all night and didn’t sleep, then caught my flight to Krakow, dozing slightly. But I got here safely, took the best fucking shower I have ever taken, despite running out of hot water at the end at the lights turning off after like five minutes, which doesn’t mesh well with my weirdly-specific phobia of dark bathrooms. And then met up with a much-loved Australian friend, because obviously the first time we actually hang out would be in Poland, and I got some yummy pierogi, went back and worked some more til like 3am, and finally passed the fuck out.

Today I slept ’til about noon, which honestly could have gone WAY worse considering my (lack of) sleep since Thursday. And it was snowing!

So my friend and I seized what little afternoon daylight was left and wandered aimlessly around the Old Town, freezing our hands off taking photos and possibly playing a little Pokemon, because fuck you.

But this city is fucking gorgeous.

Now, I need to actually charge my real camera instead of relying on iPhone pix.

Later, we met up again at a cafe/bar/laundromat, which who the fuck’s brilliant idea was that?! I now have clean underwear again, and I think my clothes mostly don’t smell anymore. So we just kind of hung out in the slightly sketchy but mostly cozy basement… thing… for a few hours, just mostly doing nothing but goofing around on our laptops and pretending to write, but it was really, really nice. And it’s actually, like, in my budget.

And also, still snowing. 😀


More wandering and friend-time this weekend, then I go to Oslo on Tuesday for three nights, and then Helsinki for four nights, and then ferry to Tallinn, where I am staying six or seven nights to just kind of decompress a bit. That’s all I have booked just yet, but after that I think I shall take the like 15 euro bus to Latvia and Lithuana for like a week and a half or so between the two, and then Prague, from whence I can start using my five-city bus pass.

The lovely thing about traveling in this season is that now nearly if not actually every city I’m looking at has hostels between $15-20 a night, if not less — even, like, Bruges and Vienna and Copenhagen all the way up to Edinburgh and Inverness and the Isle of Skye. I haven’t looked into transportation cost, which won’t be nothin’, but at least beds are cheap.

So like… where should I spent Christmas?
